6 short stories with important lessons

1.The short story of David and Goliath:

This short story is about a young man called David. Goliath was the champion of the Philistine army and had never been defeated in battle, but when he challenged any Israelite to fight him one-on-one, no one would accept his challenge. David accepted this huge challenge and went up against Goliath with nothing more than a slingshot and some stones. David won because he had faith that if God wanted him to win, victory would be assured.

The moral of this short story is: if you have faith that God will do what is right, then you can be assured of success.

Believe in God when everyone else doubts you – even if it seems like an impossible task! Even though many people underestimated what a small boy could do, they overcame someone much stronger than them by believing in themselves.


2.Joseph and his Coat of Many Colours:

Joseph was a striking figure, with “many colours” in his coat. His father Jacob loved Joseph more than any other son because he felt that God had blessed him for the many sacrifices he made to give his children a good life. This favouritism caused jealousy within Joseph’s brothers, which led to them selling their brother into slavery when they were out looking for food during a time of famine in their homeland Canaan. 

The short story teaches us to be honest with others and ourselves, as Joseph was. He resisted the temptation to take advantage of his brothers’ mistakes when they came begging for food the second time, refusing to give in even though he could have easily taken revenge against them.

3.Story of Samson and Delilah:

In the story of Samson and Delilah, there are a few valuable lessons to be learned. The first is that it’s important not to rely on your looks or attractiveness for happiness in life because even if you do everything right, someone will still find a way to take it away from you (in this case, by cutting off all his hair). Instead, we should focus on our strengths and skills so that everyone else can’t have any control over us no matter what happens.

Another lesson relates to how short-sighted people can sometimes be when their desires blind them. For example, Delilah wanted money but didn’t see the long-term consequences her actions would cause; she also never considered asking for more than just his secret of his power.


4.The Good Samaritan:

This short story is about a traveller robbed by thieves and left for dead on the side of the road. Although he begged to be taken to an inn so that he could recover, none of these passersby stopped. A priest finally came upon him but opted not to help because this man had sinned in his eyes (he did not acknowledge or worship God).

Finally, a Samaritan passed by and helped the wounded traveller with compassion, even paying all the money out of pocket for necessary medical care. The short story concludes with Jesus telling people they should “go and do likewise.” It means we need to show love like Christ shows himself through us-no matter what situation presents itself.

Love our neighbour and show kindness even when it’s not popular. We should strive to be like Christ in all aspects of life, especially how he shows compassion for those wounded or lost. No matter what they do or believe.


5.God’s Promise to Abraham:

The short story of God’s promise to Abraham is a great example for us today. This short story illustrates how we should not worry about the future but instead only focus on what needs to be done in our present circumstances, which will allow us to reach our goals and dreams.

In this short tale, God promises that he will make sure all of Abraham’s descendants have an inheritance (Genesis 15:18-21).

He then reiterates his promise by making a covenant with him (Genesis 17), promising him many descendants who would inherit the land from Egypt up into Assyria and Babylon. Despite very little change in their current situation, they are promised blessings if they trust God with their faith intact.

The short story teaches:

Trust God in your present circumstances, and you will be rewarded.


6.Lot’s Daughters:

The Lot and his family were survivors of the destruction of Sodom, which God judged for its immorality. At one point, two angels came to warn them that they should leave, so they don’t get caught in a coming catastrophe. They stayed because their home was precious to them and then ran out when it became clear that the city would soon be destroyed by fire from heaven – but not before getting drunk on wine as an act of defiance against this judgement.

The next morning, these same angels had news: “The Lord is about to destroy everything.” But now, some people want nothing more than escape, including Lot’s wife and daughters, who begged him insistently until he agreed. When they tried to flee together, they were stopped by the angels who told them to turn back because it was not yet God’s time. But his wife, desperate to save her life and children, pleaded with him until he agreed – even though she doesn’t speak herself alone but also speaks on behalf of their daughters.

This short story teaches us three important lessons:

First, Lot’s family could have escaped from Sodom if they had been more obedient. Second, we mustn’t be tempted like Lot’s wife and daughter when there is a clear warning or instruction against something to preserve our lives. Thirdly, no one should take responsibility for another person; everyone has free will and must decide whether good or bad.


In conclusion, these short stories show how valuable it can be to look outside of biblical events for lessons about life instead of reading them only as a chronological timeline. They provide great reminders about what’s important and serve as cautionary tales against taking risks when there are clear instructions given by God or others who know better than you!
